That frog is an incredible size. I have never seen one anywhere close to that. Quite a meal for the heron!
It'll take a week just to digest it!
They always seem to "get it down the hatch" somehow...but as you say, digestion may take a while !
I waited a bit to see if it vomited the frog back up. It didn't.
Great behavioral sequence. First thing I found in japan was that the frogs were big and the bats were tiny. Where I come from the bats are huge and the frogs are tiny.
Both tiny in the UK............
Well he certainly will not go hungry for a while Brilliant shots Staurt
It won't be able to eat (or fly) for a few days I'm sure........
Hello Stuart!:) Wow! I like your title,:) and it is a huge frog. Incredible captures of the Heron doing what comes naturally, even if it takes a while to get the frog down his throat. Looking at some of these images, I would have thought it an impossible feet. All the best.:)
I never thought it could swallow it but it did.............
